  1. Just like the Trapdoor Springfield rifle that preceded it, the Krag Jorgenson was yet another crappy military rifle that was obsolete before it even went into production.  While it did at least hold multiple rounds (5), it did not have a detachable magazine, nor could it accept stripper clips.  This means once you fire all 5 rounds, you had to reload one at a time.  In combat, it basically became a single-shot weapon after you fired 5 rounds.  Even the early repeating rifles from the 1860s were better.  At least with them, you could fire over a dozen rounds before reloading.  America's army was just an utter failure when it came to 19th century rifle technology.  In the entire second half of the 19th century, they never took advantage of the best rifle tech and went into literally every war with obsolete guns as their standard issue.

  2. As long as you aren’t getting charged by watermelons, coconuts or two litre bottles of soft drinks I think you would be an excellent marksman
